snow shoveling

SCI is currently seeking volunteers of all ages for our ongoing project Woburn Volunteers for Seniors. This project matches handicapped and isolated seniors with local volunteers, who will assist them with snow shoveling. It's a great chance for students to earn some service hours as well as for families to volunteer together, especially as there are currently over 50 seniors in our community who are requesting our help this year. 

We at SCI Woburn, in partnership with the Woburn Senior Center, have become aware that there are some seniors in our community who are in need of serious shoveling assistance. There are some serious safety issues involved-- e.g. one elderly woman living alone is struggling to keep her gas vent clear. Therefore, SCI is matching youth volunteers with seniors in the community who desperately need snow removal. 

 
SCI is looking for local, Woburn youth interested in receiving community service hours, such as YES, confirmation, scout service, etc, to help meet this need. If an advisor, coach, or parent has students willing to volunteer, they should contact us and give us an idea of how many students they have and when they might be available. We can then assign them to the seniors in most pressing need of help. If they think they might be able to round up some volunteers, they can let us know that even before they have the group totally lined out, so we can get a sense of how many folks we might be able to help.
